Making Contact Required b4 creating a account?

hi guys, I want my users to mandatory create a contact b4 dey can make a account? Any help how dis could b done? Thanks in advance
Ny replies? Actually if i go by the rule: convert lead-> i get an account,contact and an opportunity. This is ok. But what if a user directly creates an account and does not create or associate a contact with it. I want a contact to be associated with a account in mandatory. any suggestions?

Are you creating lookup(contact) field on account? : If yes then you can make it mandatory in many ways like validation rules , page layouts etc... You can not make lookup field mandatory on object level.


Please let me know if it doesn't resolves your problem.
